All-Stars at Lilyworld
In celebration of Aotearoa’s first ever Matariki public holiday this June, some of our most celebrated and treasured Māori artists will come together for a free concert at Mt Smart Stadium’s Lilyworld on Friday 24th June.
Formed in Kirikiriroa, Katchafire have become a global roots reggae phenomenon. They have been bringing their classic sound to music lovers worldwide delivering one of the most authentic Reggae shows for the last 25 years. Katchafire are loved by New Zealanders of all ages. With five successful studio albums, multiple awards, platinum sales, and hits such as ‘Get Away’, ‘Love Letter’ and ‘Working’, Katchafire have soundtracked Kiwi summers for decades.
Anika Moa needs no introduction to Kiwi audiences. With a gift of story-telling through song, Anika Moa is one of our most celebrated (and crack up) artists. Anika has released six studio albums spawning tracks such as ‘Youthful’, ‘Dreams In My Head’, ‘Buttercup’ and ‘Running Through The Fire’. She also has three wildly popular children’s albums inspired by the tamariki around her. Any time Anika takes the stage, you know you will be treated to not only her incredible voice and songs, but you’ll also be laughing along at her classic sense of humour.
